Could one of you legal minds read below and let me know if this means that Clinton has signed bills and laws without the power to do so since his Impeachment?
The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: And no Person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two thirds of the Members present.
Judgment in Cases of Impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from Office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust or Profit under the United States: but the Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment and Punishment, according to Law.
Keep in mind that I am a Canadian, so what do I know about this topic, but since no one jumped into the water on this one - here goes. The senate did not vote for impeachment when they had the chance to. They did not proceed with impeachment. Would not a conviction result in Clintons removal from office? Since that did'nt happen he remained president and can sign bills. He should face a number of criminal charges when he leaves office, - perjury for starters. I bet he will not as Bush will grant him a presidential pardon from criminal prosecution.
